Love, sex and the male brain

Great article by Louann Brizendine here.

I highly recommend this article to both singles and couples. For women, it will help you understand why men behave as they do.

Still, our brains do not control us totally. We can still make decisions about what to do differently if what we are doing is not helping.

That’s why it’s important to seek to understand instead of immediately reacting. For women, if you understand how a man is wired, you can respond with more compassion. For men, understanding why women do what they do can help you to respond to her in ways that connect the two of you better.

Even Relationship Coaches Get the Relationship Blues

What a difficult day. I’m leaning sideways, trying to regain my (emotional) equilibrium. I love the saying, “This too shall pass.” No matter how happy you may be, it changes. No matter how sad, you cannot stay there forever. Our emotional states change. If they did not, we wouldn’t be able to stand the intensity of whatever emotion is present at the moment.

Is He Really Interested?

I just commented on a post by the Dating Goddess. Here’s the link to see her reply:

I have copied the question she was asked along with my comment:

“I’ve been seeing a guy for 6 months and we still can’t get farther than a quick peck on the lips or a quick impersonal hug. I’ve told him I want more intimacy but still nothing. What should I do?” Read the rest of this entry »

Take Care of Your Marriage

Dating Excuses and Complaints

“You cannot complain about something you are not willing to do something about.” Fabienne Fredrickson, Client Attraction Mentor

I heard Fabienne say this when I attended her workshop recently and I immediately related it to attracting the love of your life.  How often do you complain about being single and not being able to find the one for you? What are you doing about it? If you decide it is not worth it to work on yourself and what you are doing to attract your life partner to you and you keep complaining about it, what does that say about you?

Dating: Negative Self-Talk

The way you talk to yourself affects your dating success.  If you are sure that you can only attract losers or weirdos, you are more likely to attract them. If you have told yourself that you are completely unworthy of love, you are much more likely to end up alone.  If you know in your heart that you will attract the right one for you, your chances of success increase.
